tv Good Day Philadelphia at 6a FOX June 10, 2015 6:00am-7:01am EDT
he's resigned. we'll tell you more about that in just a second. good day everybody it is wednesday, june the tenth 2015. we're all here for you. >> yes we are. >> here? >> yes, gorgeous day nine out of ten. >> beautiful walking in. >> and why you think that was? >> humidity, we had cold front move through. >> we have sue serio telling us. >> yes. >> and high pressure is in control. >> it is. >> it is a nine out of ten today. and that is the reason why. it is so lovely when you pay attention. we've got bus stop buddy with a giant bottle of sunscreen today. because you will need it. you want to spend some time out of doors. because it is more comfortable, than it has been. we will put some shades on him, as well. nice hat thereto keep his little dome from getting sunburned. we have ultimate doppler, and nothing on it. isn't that delightful? look at the sunshine 68 degrees, right now we had our sunrise at 5:32 this morning, six a % relative humidity for june, in philadelphia and that's
pretty darn good. and very light winds, this morning, as well. 87 degrees our high temperature so it will be warm. it just won't be too humid out there, with all of the sunshine tonight down to 68 degrees with just few clouds. and that is your weather authority forecast for your hump day. here's bob kelly. >> oh we got big hump to get over here today. good morning everybody. 6:01. skyfox looking live over the scene of this overturned tractor-trailer. i have been talking about on i295. in mt. holly new jersey, obviously, all northbound lanes have been closed, for the past hour i would say 40 minute or so. looks like they're trying to get set up to have one lane open here, take a look at this mike, here's your house. this is the framework for your new house. >> oh no. is that an a-frame? >> it is an a-frame. exactly. look at this, look at them trying to get this knucklehead through on the grass trying to get around.
that's probably why we have a big back up. looks like they opened up the one lane, that left lane here. >> does he have anything to do with the problem? >> no, he doesn't. >> he's just trying get through? >> i saw this guy in the delay as he was coming up behind with all of the brake lights. so as far as the accident goes, it is a three lane stretch here, 295 north just above route 541. so it looks like they're going try to allow one lane of traffic through. but police are blocking the onramps here from mt. holly, new jersey, so here's the deal. if you are getting ready to step out the front door right now, it is northbound lanes of i295 just north of route 541. so if you are headed north this morning use the new jersey turnpike. you can jump on the new jersey turnpike, right there at route 541 which is exit number five. obviously, that's going to be there with us, through the morning rush hour and even if we have one lane open we're still going to have back up for the gang heading
northbound. another accident, this one northbound on the northeast extension, right before the lansdale interchange. so backed up from mid-county, heading north this morning i know yesterday we had that big problem, on the southbound side all of the southbound lanes are open, and septa having some equipment problems this morning on the market frankford line. so between 30th and 52nd street, you'll need to board all of the trains from the eastbound platform. otherwise, your normal delays on both 95, and the schuylkill expressway on this wednesday morning. mike alex back to you. >> this is wednesday every day this week, we've started our newscast with hit-and-run stories. and now this morning we have two more. a man struck by a car on roosevelt boulevard. not surprising. one of the most dangerous roads until the world. >> now, police are looking for the driver. let's get to steve. the problem is they don't have much to go off of. steve? >> did you guys see the follow up from monday's hit-and-run the damage to that guy's car? >> yes. >> horrible. >> how do you drive with the car like that?
>> i don't know. >> the hood is crushed in. the windshield smashed. the airbags deployed. the whole front end obliterated. the guy takes off from the scene. well with all of that damage, you would think there would be more than just the windshield wiper motor that police found but at least they had that. the problem here is they didn't find one single car part but the injuries to this fellow just as severe as the injuries to kyle down in south jersey fortunately, he's doing a little bit better. that's the good news in the hit-and-run update for this week. the bad news here, critical condition. there is no surround vale end around here. inspector small said plenty of business. but you can see this intersection empty lot over there. this is residential. happened on the inner lanes there is a clothes business with no cameras there. so maybe he's tack being surveillance throughout the boulevard. maybe seeing a car with heavy front end damage, trying to drive away from here. but, did not have one single car part. so here we are at front street. see there is a crosswalk there. and we just watched a woman
with a cane, must do this every day she had to wait for the light to change four times to get across all of these 12 lanes. each time a light she barely would make it to one median. so it must take her 15 minutes just to cross the street one way, every day. so this fellow may have been walking when he had the light. and then the light changed and maybe he got hit then. this is 1:30 in the morning. a loft times the comes tell you it is not even the drivers fault if they just stop, but always take off immediately that makes them law breakers. here is inspector small with what little they know about this case from 1:30 this morning. >> upon police arrival and fire department paramedics arrival, they found 25 year old male, who was laying in the inner lanes of the boulevard northbound spot suffering injuries to his legs and torso medics transported him to einstein hospital where he's presently in critical condition with a broken leg and a broken pelvis. the impact caused the 25 year
old victim to come out of both of his shoes. there is no parts of the striking vehicle that we can see in plane view on the boulevard. however we believe that the striking vehicle will have some front end damage. >> and so the two boat shoes found co-innings dentally in the crosswalk may indicate that's where he was because you get knocked out of your shoes, especially shoes essentially lovers, so boat shoes are found there. thank god some decent people did stop when they saw the poor man lying in the street, and they called 911 and got an ambulance to him real quick or woe have been killed. so some good people out there, didn't just drive by this thinking it was somebody just laying around on the street stumbling around or sleeping it off here on median somewhere. >> anybody saw the immediate accident. just thought they saw honda
going up the street. it is always wrong to begin w so they don't have any beat on there is no plate all they can hope somebody's conscious comes forward or maybe a camera further down the street somehow somebody's going to check later today when they come in see a car with massive front end damage. here we go again we've been thon road for so many accidents, as you talked about, mike, the most dangerous road. when i saw complete big in depth story here i shout it right on this concern coincident will he talked about how dangerous judge this spot is, we've sengi walkers here in the dark dark clothes, people with headphones again people on the phone. not paying attention. if you have driver, not going to car and tee it doesn't guarantee guy is not drunk and going fast through the light. so do you have look both ways no matter not in you are just little kidney more, we tell the little kids, until you are 90 look both ways on the
street and then maybe look both ways twice. >> clothing -- closing in on 9o here is the definition, what's the definition every insanity. >> doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. >> yes, so 16 years now i have ben talking about roosevelt boulevard being the most dangerous. so why don't we do something about it? >> mike when i did that story, mike stack the lieutenant governor now he had an idea, of course a loft critic came out beat him up over t he wanted to put speed cameras here. they have red light cameras but speed cameras would ticket you. well he tried to do. that will he didn't get enough support for t but he'll keep pushing for t he just wants to get people to slow down not going over the 45-mile per hour speed limit maybe a chance to survive. >> i was warned about the roosevelt. >> oh, people all around the country know about it. also somebody, another hit-and-run guy laid out on market street telling but in just a second, first this, most people pan wick they see an umpire collapse on a field. this happened in delaware county. he collapsed by second base. lucky for him that young man
was on second base. saved his life. >> sure d we'll tell you the story after the break. i'm whoopi goldberg and new york is my home. there's no place like it in the world and no better place to lean about the people who shaped who we are today. hear about the lives of slaves in colonial new york and about the fight to abolish slavery. pick a stop on the underground railroad and visit the home and grave of one of new york's most controversial citizens. a journey in new york is a journey through history. plan you next trip at iloveny.com/summer. there's something for everyone.

jersey turnpike, from the get go. you can get on right here, 541, actually, exit five, on the new jersey turnpike, from, say, cherry hill mt. laurel. i would use the turnpike from the get go. and head north into avoid that delay. another accident, north on the extension, right before the lansdale interchange. now, that mess we had to deal with yesterday, was coming southbound and all of the lanes are open between quakertown and lansdale. good morning, to the benny. ben franklin bridge come nothing philadelphia, no problems or delays at the moment. actually light volume coming over the benny but pack your shades for sun glare hit the curve, conshy curve headed eastbound, start to slow down, that delay continues in through girard avenue. mike alex back to you. >> talking b ball now what do you say? >> cleve lard cavaliers just two games away from an nba title. so this morning has this series the way it is going so far, has it really changed your view of the king, labron james? >> big daddy graham, i remember i listen to you

is and here's what happened. here's how the whole book came about. my sister gave me call one day about my dad. with a question about him. i didn't know the answer. and he had been dead for so long i hardly new him when he was alive. it was dawning on me, i wasn't remembering anything about him any more. so i just started jotting down anything coy think of. and it ended up being a book, which people love. it is so like over 30,000 copies just in this area. and i think the reason why people like it, it is because you can read it like a half hour and then tell everybody you made a book. >> real quickly tell that story about he did like the gamble. >> he did. i think he envisioned himself before the war of being like a gambling big shot. kind of almost like a mobster to tell you the truth. everything changed when he went in the war and when he came out and that's how the play differs from the book. it is just why i tell
everybody, you should write things down about your mom and dad. >> look at this. >> yes, he loved to gahm job tell me the story about how he broke his leg. >> oh yes. he was escaping arrayed on an illegal gambling house and thought he was running in to a basement that maybe escape that way. there was a basement there but it had no steps. >> and then another story i relate to i only saw my dad would kiss my mom twice a day, when he left for work and when he came home from work, but just peck on the lips. did you ever see your mom and dad kiss? >> never. never saw them dance. if there is a picture every him, next to each other it is by accident. now, the one to the left is before the war. the one to the right is obviously after the wariments you can see he doesn't even want to be in the photo. but what happened was when this book came out friend of mine who worked for the veterans administration found out some wild stuff about my dad that neither i or anyone else in my family ever new.
and it is the ending of the play which is not in the book and it really moves people. not that the show doesn't have laughs it does have laughs along the way but at the end it packs a big wallop. if i say so myself, perfect thing to bring your dad or your son or what your daughter who ever to see the show sunday. >> talk about laughs, this is your last performance, isn't it? >> last time i'm ever going to do it. >> only done this show maybe 50 times. this is it. it is the last time i'm doing it. it is time. i'm now older than my dad was when he died. >> oh? >> which was not the case when i wrote the book. so, it is time to move on. >> this will be on sunday, broadway theater pitman, 2:00 big daddy graham. com for particular. >> the oh that's great. big daddy congratulations on the book and the play and it's been a good run. and we'll see you soon. >> hey, one of these days i'll get downstairs! >> ya? >> we have security down here. >> i know. >> we don't let you pass. >> but they barely let me in
